“We don’t drink when we’re apart. Ever. Even if we’re apart for weeks. We don’t want to go [to nightclubs or] anywhere that you’re asking for trouble. I don’t want to be in Europe texting her, like ‘Where are you?’ This way we don’t have to worry about any of that stuff.”
–Chad Kroeger tells People that one of his and Avril Lavigne’s rules for a happy, Chavril-tastic marriage is a pledge to only drink together. I’m all about doing whatever works for you, but I also feel like they might want to work on their trust issues instead of making rules. Does anyone want to discuss the intricacies of Chavril’s marriage with me? No? OK. Some of the couple’s other tips for a happy relationship: don’t go more than two weeks without seeing each other, and make plenty of time for snuggling. You’re welcome! [People]
I know I’m pretty much the only one who still cares about Chavril LaKroeger, AKA Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne, and every time I post stuff about them I get kind of nervous that Amelia is going to take me aside and be like, “Winona, it’s time to chill out about Chavril.” But since she hasn’t said anything yet, here is a super romantic photo of Chavril on the set of the video for their duet, “Let Me Go.” In related news, I just discovered I have THREE different photos saved on my computer titled “super romantic chavril pic.” Sigh. It might be time for me to chill out about Chavril… [Instagram]
Finally, we have a full-length photo of Avril’s black wedding dress! In our poll yesterday, a slight majority of Frisky readers expressed distaste for the black wedding dress trend. I’m totally into the color (or lack thereof) of Avril’s dress and hubby Chad Kroeger’s coordinating black tux, but I have some other concerns about this photo. Mainly, how is it possible for a 14th century French castle to look exactly like the “hidden forest” background of my 5th grade school picture? Suspicious… [People]
Over the weekend, Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger tied the knot with fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne in a castle in the south of France. Pretty fancy, Chavril. The pair got married in a mega-gothy ceremony, with Lavigne in a custom Monique Lhuillier gown. A black gown. Black gowns are nothing new, of course; earlier this year, Shenae Grimes wore a black Vera Wang gown to marry her boyfriend, Josh Beech. And back in 1997, Sarah Jessica Parker wore black at her wedding to Matthew Broderick. All in all, colorful wedding dresses seem to be blowing up, but we’re a bit on the fence about all that black. It just seems a bit … dour? What do you think?

“I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests … I wanted it to be over the top. I’m obsessed with castles and I love French décor and goth. I found this castle in France and we visited it and it was perfect.”
–New bride Avril Lavigne opens up about her weekend wedding to Chad Kroeger in an upcoming Hello! Canada cover story. More details that I know none of you care about but I am obsessing over: the ceremony was held at the Chateau de la Napoule medieval castle near Cannes, Lavigne wore a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown and carried a matching black bouquet, and the 110 guests danced to a playlist that included Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bruno Mars.

It. Is. Finally. Happening. Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne — the couple known affectionately as Chavril — are getting married in the south of France today. Over the weekend, some Chavril friends tweeted about wedding festivities, which set off a rumor that the wedding happened on Saturday, which set off a frantic stream of “I NEED PICS WHERE ARE THE PICS” messages between Amelia and me, but alas, the event was actually a pre-wedding party. Today is the actual wedding day, and the best part? Today is also Canada Day. Seriously.

“My mother always taught me that. There was a rule in our house, no calling guys. I wasn’t allowed to call guys, they had to call me. Men like a chase.”
–Avril Lavigne shares the old-fashioned courtship tip that presumably worked wonders in her relationship with Chad Kroeger, especially since he proposed with a monster rock after just one month of dating the “Here’s To Never Growing Up” singer.
Also, you guys, I have to tell you about this photo. So, this morning I found a batch of paparazzi photos titled “Avril Lavigne Departing LAX,” and when I clicked on them, I realized that Chad Kroeger was there with her too, but had been cropped out of all the photos! He was able to photobomb his way into exactly one picture (shown above) with his more famous fiance, which I will be framing and placing above my mantle later today. Oh Chavril, never change. [Daily Mail]
“We started dating and the next day he was like, ‘You know I’m gonna marry you.’ And I said, ‘I know.’ It was one of those things that we just knew.”
–Avril Lavigne spills some specifics about her whirlwind romance with fiance Chad Kroeger in a joint interview that also included Chad summarizing the pair’s courtship as follows: “it just kind of blossomed into this kind of thing.” You guys, I have to admit that my Chavril obsession has gotten to the point where I literally started sweating when I saw they had done an interview together. I was literally leaking Chavril excitement out of my pores. I’m disgusting. Sorry. CHAVRIL 4EVER. [Us Weekly]
